Ferro Pedal: Bluetooth Switchable Magnetic Bicycle Pedal

A pedal that behaves like a clip-less pedal, and can then be switched to a platform pedal on-the-fly, could prove to be a game-changing tool to mountain bikers across a range of disciplines. Our method of accomplishing this is with a Bluetooth switchable magnetic bicycle pedal.

Projects that Kyle has supported

Open Source Hardware Enterprise Building Tools for Future On-campus Makerspace

We are a brand-new Enterprise dedicated to the development, advancement, and availability of open-source hardware. Being a new Enterprise, we are lacking funds to get our projects off the ground. Unlike open-source software, hardware development is costly. We are currently split between managing our growing 3D printing business and constructing the first few tools for a Michigan Tech "makerspace."
